in Pittsboro , NC |
First appointment with Dr. Millender, somewhat of an emergency. She is very knowledgeable and professional, took time to made certain I understood options and selected path of treatment. Highly recommended. Along with Dr. Throneburg, a good team for my needs.
in Spring Lake NC |
I am very pleased with Dr. Millender and staff. My procedure went well, and my post-op exam with dr. Thornburg is very good. 20/20 vision, no after surgery problems, and if recommended I will let dr. Millender preform the surgery. I received calls fro Dr. Millender and an associate to check on my progress. I will recommend this service to my family and friends.
